I been in Staples for 2 years. I
bought stock January 1998 during
the time it was
going to split and it acted like this then to.
at a 2 year chart of Staples under chart and you can
how it acted in January of 1998 it is very similar.
told me that he believes that Staples
will be the Walmart of the
bought more Staples today. I have faith in them.
have been the backbone of my portfolio. It is a quite
but very dependable.
when spls hit 47-48, i said it was too high and
would see the 30's...now, it is at 40 and,imo, is going
to keep going lower... it will sell off after the
split... AND as for splits---its days are over...will be
lucky to have a split every 5 years !!! look at its
history---its share price has never been over the recent 48 3/4
intraday high...sell today before the split
I went fishing yesterday and missed the news.
Viax is hanging in there. IMHO I hope with Viax
getting on AOL and in the SPLS stores it could do BOTH
stocks some good. If someone didn't want to order VIAX
products off the web, they can check it out in the SPLS
stores. Speculation,yes but I hope it happens.
If post #1411 was correct on the splits and price
per share, I wish I would have bought back in 90. If
I would have bought 100 shares at $20 bucks back
then that $2000 investment today would be worth over
$46,843 which is a return of 2342%. I hope the trend
Here is the Math:
100 shares X 1.5
= 150 SHARES
150 """"" X 1.5 = 225 SHARES
""""" X 1.5 = 337.5 SHARES
337.5 X 1.5 = 506.25
506.25 X 1.5 = 759.375 SHARES
759.375 X 1.5 =
THOSE ARE THE 6 SPLITS AND NOW THOSE
1139.0625 SHARES ARE WORTH 41.125 TODAY SO THE TOTAL WOULD
BE $46843.94 WOW
Well I tried to do too much in my head.. My share
counts went 100,150,175,262,393,589 but the 175 should
have been 225. Oh well, I see some others came up with
the correct answer. No wonder I have a B- in math :-(
It was my first options play when it split last
year that I came up with all by myself(no broker, no
husband). I had the 21 and change(all numbers are post
split adjusted) calls from the day they announce the
split untill the day they split, made nearly three
times my money on them, and called out the stock at 21
and change, bought more at 26. I just love the
steadiness of the stock and the rock solid management. Even
in a really down market, I have never lost sleep
over SPLS. I am not sure how they do it?
